Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Hovdestoylen lies peacefully next to the river Otra, with hiking and ski trails that pass just outside the hotel. The hotel has 41 spacious rooms, several of them with loft and plenty of room for the whole family. All rooms have free wireless internet connection. By the reception is our pleasant bar and cozy fireplace lounge. The restaurant is divided into different departments and has great views of the mountains. In May 2010 we start the rebuilding of Hovdestoylen Hotel. The hotel will have new restaurants and public areas, and rooms will be converted into apartments with flexible solutions, so you can rent either rooms or whole apartments. ... more   less
